An Italian furniture brand Moroso has collaborated with the designer Daniel Libeskind who designed a new line of seating, featuring sharp angles and faceted forms inspired by crystals. Last year at the Salone del Mobile fair the Gemma chair, Libeskind’s initial piece for the collection, made its debut in Milan. Libeskind established his eponymous studio in Berlin in 1989 and later relocated the firm’s headquarters to New York.
The Gemma collection is intended for commercial and residential use. It features a chair and sofa, along with a seating system.
Daniel Libeskind collaborated together with Patrizia Moroso, creative director for Moroso. The known architect described a designer as a business woman with an artistic mind.
“When she looks at a design, when she looks at a drawing, she understands what it can be,” he said during a launch event last week in New York. “She doesn’t just look at it and think, how much money can it be sold for, how much money is going to be made.”
The Gemma collection is intended for commercial and residential use and features a chair and sofa, along with a seating system that could be used in public spaces such as airports. Moreover, the Gemma collection takes its cues from precious gemstones, particularly crystals. Moroso described the pieces as “an exercise in architecture on a small scale”.
